Fancy Hank's Bar & Kitchen


Fancy Hank’s is a bar and kitchen tucked away in the laid-back-streets of the historic Minster Quarter and offers good mood food inspired by two brothers travels through the 11 states of America’s Deep South.

The menu at Fancy Hank’s Bar & Kitchen focuses on classics like gumbo, jambalaya, fried chicken and more.

With a great cocktail list, social vibe and vibrant atmosphere this York spot is not to be missed. Fancy Hank's is a stone’s throw away from the railway station. Advance booking highly recommended as seats tend to fill up fast

Kids are welcome - we have an awesome menu for them and we have highchairs and baby changing facilities too.

Dogs are welcome too - Lots of fresh water available, but we don’t have a special menu for them sorry!

Our building is a bit old and has lots of stairs so is only wheelchair friendly in our front bar. Sadly, the stairs also make our bathrooms inaccessible for wheelchair users.
